    Could Going Vegetarian Lower Kids’ Asthma Risk? | Health News

    By Steven Reinberg HealthDay Reporter (HealthDay) MONDAY, Dec. 28, 2020 (HealthDay News) — Compounds in meat may trigger wheezing in some children that can potentially lead to asthma or other respiratory conditions, a new study suggests.
